Population justification: The global population is estimated to number 4.7 million mature individuals (Partners in Flight 2019).

Trend justification: The species has been undergoing a large increase at an average rate of 1.2% per year between 1970 and 2017 (Partners in Flight 2019). Short-term trends suggest that the population increased by 18% over the past ten years (Pardieck et al. 2018).
